The best among you are those who are generous in settling their debts

Question

Could you reference the narration?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The best of you is he who is most generous in settlement.” [i.e paying without delaying or voluntarily paying the creditor more]

 

Answer

Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2305, 2306, 2390 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1601)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
